Travel Back to the Trojan War with a Love Tale Like No Other

Rude Mechs is thrilled to deliver the world premiere of a brand-new Fixing Shakespeare play. This time Kirk Lynn's sight is set on Fixing Troilus and Cressida, and Alexandra Bassiakou Shaw is directing.

Troilus and Cressida is the love story hidden in the center of history’s greatest war. As the Greeks enter their seventh year of hammering against the Trojan’s wall, one young warrior, Troilus, is ready to risk it all and pledge his loyalty to a new love. The young woman, Cressida, is cautious, having been punished for her father’s treason and made a servant to the Trojan princes.

The relationship is nurtured by the matchmaker, Pandarini, who advises, scolds, and pushes the lovers to trust one another. Around them war and chaos burn, Hector rages, Ulysses plots, Achilles stalls, Agemomnem tries to keep it all together, and Cassandra forsees death.

Let your heart be slaughtered by the Rudes’ take on Shakespeare’s take on Homer’s Illiad. We’re brave enough to tell you whether Helen really wants to be there and to once and for all find out if romance can survive politics or family.

It’s a performance you will not want to miss at the Nowlin Rehearsal Studio!
